PTW - Template

Oh my what a day, first day back to work and with less than 5 hours sleep being up half the night, I struggled to get through the day. I have a long term repetative strain/arthritis in my right hand and think I must have over done it this long weekend making cards and blogging. So this post is probably going to be the only one for a few days as I need to rest it, as I cant do that at work. :-(

So if there's any type error's please forgive me as I'm doing this left handed.

I made this card last night for Papertake Weekly Challenge - Template, but didn't get a chance to post it. I'm loving this template, thanks to Kathrina for setting this challenge. Sorry I didn't slant the centre pieces - hope this is ok.

Here's the sketch:


When I started this card, as I'd seen it on Kim's blog before the post was on PTW and decided to do something different - no pink ...... Yes you read this correct, no pink, and thought I'd make a black + white card which I haven't done in ages. Then when I just went on PTW I saw Dawn had made a b+w too, but I'm sure she'll not mind, as mine is no comparision - her's is just sooooo fabulous, a piece of art is what describes it best, lol.

Anyway enough rambling as this is tricky enough left handed as it is. I'm going to apologise now if I cant view everyone's blogs tonight, but will sure to be back once my hand is better.



Thanks for stopping by :-)x
